Food cravings: Super hungry but nothing specific.

Not so funny things: I am so not looking forward to taking my Glucose test next Wednesday. As some of you may know, I had Gestational Diabetes while pregnant with Bubba and it sucked royally. Prayers I pass and am in the clear 🙂 Oh and I cracked my tooth the other day… heading to the dentist this morning. Just my luck!
And before you head off for the weekend, please take a minute to say hello to Noor, one of my fabulous sponsors this month! She loves sparkles, gold, rain, and all things pink! She blogs about her life, laughs, random things, and more 🙂
Be sure to show her some love on social media and have a great weekend!
